Our Story

The excitement continues to build at Club K9, the ultimate dog care services facility. Formed by Eric and Lori Fabianac, entrepreneurs, dog lovers and property owners of the Crow Canyon Ranch; where a new standard in canine care is being created – by providing unparalleled, personalized services.

Eric and Lori Fabianac have owned their Crow Canyon Ranch for the past 30 years, where they lived and worked (Eric ran worldwide operations for Electronic Arts and Lori ran the Bank of Walnut Creek).  However, in 1992, Eric and Lori embarked on a worldwide adventure and leased their property.  During their adventure, Eric and Lori made their way to Park City, Utah; Eindhoven, The Netherlands; and New York City while pursuing goals related to corporate advancement.  After serving on the Board of Management for Philips Electronics and founding a media technology company sold to a major media outlet, Eric and Lori returned home for a change of pace.

And what a change indeed! Once Eric and Lori began talking, the magical vision of Club K9 began to form and the company was created in 2003.  Our vision is to provide dog owners with the ultimate in canine services – whether it is for active and socialized overnight boarding or dog-exhausing day care.  We understand that your work, vacation, or other commitments may keep you from spending time with your canine companion, so Club K9 is here to help! Our staff and animal lovers will make sure your best friend receives the daily exercise, socialization and companionship that they need in a safe and luxurious environment.

We invite you to come in and get acquainted with Club K9.  After a visit to the club you may overhear your dog talking to his friends encouraging them to visit – because at Club K9, “WHILE YOU’RE AWAY, YOUR DOG’S AT PLAY!”
